School News Prompt

The stories about college or high schools are different than news stories from professional publications because they are probably geared towards a younger audience which is high school and college age.  This means these stories are about things that affect college and high school students.  They are similar to the professional publications because they are all really detailed and there’s reporting from other sources.  The story that required the most reporting was “In the Dark: records shine light on sexual misconduct.”  The story that required the least reporting was “Feminine products kept hidden.”  In my opinion, it can still be a really good story even if there’s not as much reporting done.  My favorite story was “Mental Health needs soar at St. Thomas.”  It was my favorite because it was not only about mental health but it was also really good at going into detail about how there wasn’t enough counseling staff at the college.  For “Mental health needs soar at St. Thomas,” I could write about the counseling resources on campuses.  I could interview the school counselors, Ms. Evonne Jones and Dr. Dawson Woodrum.  I could ask them about how many people come to the counseling center per day.  I could also ask them about the other counseling resources on campus.
